Jennifer Laurent, Development Officer for Shriners Hospitals in Shreveport, LA was guest speaker at the Bella Vista Kiwanis Club on November 15th.    The hospital in Shreveport was the first Shriners Hospital, built in 1922.  This hospital provides high-quality medical care to all children regardless of the families’ ability to pay.  This hospital and clinic specialize in treating children with orthopedic conditions and cleft lip and palate in an environment designed to put children at ease.  “The specialists in Shreveport are determined to put children in the driver’s seat and set them on the road to independence”.  

Dennis Peacock, Treasurer of our local Nomads Shriners, spoke on their fund-raising efforts  to provide transportation to children and families for their treatment.
